Ellen Pompeo: Leaving Grey's Anatomy?

Ellen Pompeo takes her adorable daughter Stella to a playground for a day of fun on Friday (May 27) in Los Angeles.

The 41-year-old Grey’s Anatomy actress recently opened up to TV Line about possibly leaving her hit show after the end of next season, which marks the end of her contract.

“No one has asked us to come back after Season 8, so I couldn’t presume that I’m coming back … if I haven’t been invited,” Ellen said.

“If that’s what Chyler wants, and that’s what everyone wants, of course!” she added, about Chyler Leigh‘s character becoming the prominent character on the show.

FYI: Ellen is wearing TOMS Earthslate Classics.

Looks like a genuinely involved and engaged parent — not someone merely hamming it up for the benefit of the paparazzi like Gwen (I need a nanny to tie my shoes) Stefani!!!

Good for you, Ellen!

yeah, ive heard that the show might end after season 8 but if it doesnt and she will leave…well, that would be just wrong. its not greys anatomy without meredith!!! :(

She looks like a real hands on mom unlike other celebs in hollyweird.

Grey’s Anatomy is about to run its coarse anyway, she should get out now and do more films

AND ONCE AGAIN NO SIGN OF THE FATHER!!!!!!

@Brainy box: And who cares the father Ellen is a great mom, they dont need him!!!!

@Rochard. Yeah Ellen and her daughter looks happy without him Im personally think that Ellen and Stella looks better without him, he is ugly for Ellen. Besides Ellen and Stella dont seem sad at all. Sorry my english :)))))

Adorable mommy & daughter moment :)

@offtheproperty:
You’re disgusting.

If Ellen Pompeo, Sandra Oh or Chandra Wilson leave Greys, then I’m out. I love those characters!

I don’t much care for her character on the show or think she’s that great of an actress but have to comment – some of the comments here are disgusting. She’s having fun playing with her baby yet some feel the need to drag race, etc into it, you should be ashamed.

bABY looks all black

Adorable little black girl!

well the show is sort of fading out any way …so its realy better to end it on high note rather then keeping streaching it with same polt lines over and over again

The kid’s MIXED, not black.

If she leaves and Grey’s continues, well… honestly… who actually thinks the show will survive? Especially if Patrick Dempsey leaves as well. As well as the other originals. If no originals stay, the cast is gonna be crap, and the ratings will drop lower than they already have. Lets just hope it ends after season 8.

NO, Grey’s is nothing without the original characters. I don’t care for Chyler’s character at all, I find her annoying.

they looks so cute together

@Maddie: I think if she leaves, Patrick should leave too. Or vice versa. I love them together and I don’t really care to see what the writers have in store for either if one of them leaves.
I think the person to leave should be Sara Ramirez. I can’t stand her character.
Regardless, I think season 8 will be the last I tune in for. I like Chyler, but I don’t care for her character. How long can her and Eric’s charater circle around each other? It got old after the first breakup.

grey’s anatomy would never be the same without meredith on it. if mer will leave, then derek should leave too. it would be a crap if Derek will stay while the love of his life is out, but as I said, GA will never be the same without MERDER. shonda will regret it if she pursue another season after season 8 without the two main cast on it.

by the way, ellen looks a very loving mom as usual… her daughter is so adorable ♥

Precious!!! I take my two boys to playground like this all the time. Sometimes my hubby does it, we take turn so one of us can relax/finish work, etc (SO FOR THAT SILLY COMMENT ABOUT NO SIGN OF THE FATHER, STFU!).
Ellen is such a great mom! It’s not always fun going into the sand with your kid, but she did it so naturally. And she took time to show Stella how to play with sand. (Been there, done that). My admiration for Ellen Pompeo is going up and up. Gotta love her!!!

AMAZING MOM BRILLIANT ACTRESS BEAUTIFUL GORGEOUS WOMAN INSIDE OUT.
NO ELLEN means no GREY’S ANATOMY. simple.

They’re both adorable!!

Yes, she is a cute little black girl there is no such thing as mixed people, only mongrel/mutts are mixed.

Too cute for words! Ellen is such a great mom.

No ELLEN POMPEO no Grey’s Anatomy =) No one can replace Meredith Grey.. enough said ;)

@Karen:

The child IS BLACK. If you have one black parent, you are black.

And they are proud of it.

A shameless photo op! Using her child.

When Grey’s is through with her, she is done, in show business.

I think the show will probably end after season 8. They can’t do the show without her. Scrubs lasted 8 real seasons. It didn’t last after braff left. It’s had a long run and the past season was incredibly lackluster.

greys anatomy not great anymore, this show its suck now !

greys anatomy not great anymore, this show its suck

won’t be the same without Mer…and Derek can’t stay on show without her. they’re still the main dynamo that keeps me interested. NooooooH, not the younger Grey – soulless, dumb, constantly looking puppy-eyed vomit-cute, not strong enuff, not loveable, not cool, too naive-shite and yucky looking as well (to be a doctor anyway – and not believable), unforgettable – SO NO TO YOUNGER GREY!!! can’t even remember her tv name – i’ll bail out if she’s the main character

@Frida: I totally agree. The remaining cast members are what makes greys. Lexie cannot carry the show.

oh no! grey’s should end if mer and derek are not on it. it will be a crap. i hope they’ll just end the season and bring back izzie. i miss the old grey’s with george and iz…

no to lexie as the new lead. she’s annoying.

by the way ellen is so sexy and a gorgeous mom as well as her baby

shonda should just end the show. without merder GA will be a crap, and please dont kill derek just to retain meredith.

im hoping that ellen pompeo will have a movie soon, i love ellen

They both look so happy in these pics. Thanks JJ. No Meredith/Ellen no GA for me.

I would think it would be cancelled be the the show us basically named after her. Grey is her last name in the show and Grey’s Anatomy. THINK. They will probably ask her to come back.

If Shonda doesn’t asks Ellen and everybody else that has been there since the begginning to come back I would be so mad. There is no G.A without Ellen. She is the show and I feel that if the show went on without then it wouldn’t be the same. You can’t take out the main character and try to replace her. If Chyler takes Ellen place I don’t think the show will be as good. Don’t get me wrong I love Chyler but she’s not main character matrail. And if they don’t take Ellen back then I think I will stop watching the show. I am a true GA fan and I don’t think that I would be able to watch the show without my fav character. They better keep everybody. This show wouldn’t live with out Mer!
